Marcia Banks' own unique art form is a vibrant, yet tender celebration of being. Born in Brooklyn, NY, she became well schooled in the arts. She attended Pratt Institute, the Art Student's League and she graduated from the prestigious Parsons School of Design. Marcia Banks then embarked on a 25-year career in fashion illustration, becoming one of the best-known artists in that field. Her knowledge of fashion and the human body enabled her to create ads specializing in children's and adult fashions for newspapers and catalogs. Millions have seen her work in newspaper ads for Montgomery Ward. She's listed in Who's Who in American Art and received the Generoso Pope Award in New York.

Marcia Banks has paintings with undeniable mastery of figures, still lifes, flowers and objects that have passed across her canvases. Her art attains its peak perfection as she captures the inner essence of her elegant and graceful figures. When you see her figures you are curious about what they may be saying, feeling and thinking.

In 1993 Marcia Banks and her husband moved to Dallas, Texas to be near her two sons and two grandchildren. She has been traveling the United States, Paris and London and is incorporating her sights into her paintings.

She has been honored for her works by receptions by Reme Krug, the National Kidney Foundation and The Adolphus and Melrose Hotels in Dallas to name a few. Her works have been displayed coast to coast at such fine galleries as The Montclair Art in New Jersey; Southwinds Gallery in California; Banks Fine Art, Decor and 500X in Dallas; Martin Lawrence Galleries in New York, Beverly Hills, Lahaina; and in numerous corporate and private collections throughout the country.
